*Spoiler Alert: This review reveals some info about the other books in the series!* Hello!

Today I want to do a review of the graphic novel Wires and Nerve by Marissa Meyer with art by Douglas Holgate. This is a new story based on The Lunar Chronicles series, and mainly focuses… Read more »

Review: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

Review: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

4 Stars, Reviews 1

I never wanted to get into Twilight. The Twilight series was one of the most popular books/movies during my middle school career. For that reason alone, I refused to go near any of them. That didn’t last long. After Breaking Dawn Part One was released in theaters, I decided to give them all a shot. My thoughts were jumbled. I was uncomfortable with Edward and Bella’s relationship, but I loved them anyways. They are  honestly, to this day, one my… Read more »

Review: Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

Review: Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

5 Stars, Reviews 4

My Review ♥ Jennifer Niven HAS to be one of my new favorite authors. I’m actually pretty sure that I said this, or at least thought this, after reading All the Bright Places, but it is absolutely true now that I’ve read two of her books and completely adored them. After reading AtBP, I expected this book to be SAD, and there were definitely sad aspects of this book and tragic stuff, but overall, Holding Up the Universe has a super… Read more »

Review: A List of Cages by Robin Roe

Review: A List of Cages by Robin Roe

4 Stars, Reviews 4

My Review ♥ I didn’t expect to like A List of Cages quite as much as I did, but I really enjoyed it and all the emotions it induced. Adam and Julian have the kind of mentor/friend relationship that most people long for. Adam is a senior in high school who takes Julian, a quiet fourteen year old, under his wing. Adam was previously partnered with Julian in elementary school as reading buddies, and when Julian startes seeing (or ditching,… Read more »

Review: We Are Still Tornadoes by Michael Kun and Susan Mullen

Review: We Are Still Tornadoes by Michael Kun and Susan Mullen

4 Stars, Reviews 5

We Are Still Tornadoes is about two childhood and high school best friends, Cath and Scott, and it is absolutely adorable! No, really. This book was SO CUTE. Ugh. Just… ALL OF THE RELATIONSHIPS! They were so good and authentic. Not just the romantic kind, but those too. We Are Still Tornadoes, written through a correspondence of letters between Cath and Scott, manages to capture the heart of every relationship they’ve both ever experienced, whether with each other, with their family members,… Read more »

Review: My Best Everything by Sarah Tomp

Review: My Best Everything by Sarah Tomp

4 Stars, Reviews 0

Okay, so I downloaded this book as an e-ARC from Netgalley last year. LAST YEAR. And then I got busy and life happened, but I’ve been meaning to catch up on all my ARC’s, even if they’re ridiculously late. So here goes. Also, receiving this book from the publisher through Netgalley does not influence my opinion or my review, I promise. I LIKED THIS BOOK. Which was a relief after pretty much hating Maybe Someday. But for the first time… Read more »

Review: Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover

Review: Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover

1 Stars, DNF, Reviews 1

DNF Review. I could would not finish this book. I was excited to read this because I thought it’d be a fun and dramatic romance that I would love, and I’ve heard good things about Colleen Hoover so I was eager to see what the buzz was about. However, this book was a HUGE disappointment. Even worse, it made me feel all gross and uncomfortable and angry. BLAH. The felt repulsed by the characters and their actions and I WILL RANT… Read more »

Review: Mosquitoland by David Arnold

Review: Mosquitoland by David Arnold

4 Stars, Reviews 2

Mosquitoland was… something.  Possible spoilers ahead, read with caution. I mean, for the first half of the book I had NO IDEA WHAT WAS HAPPENING. This girl, Mim, overheard her father and stepmom talking to her principal and then decides to steal money from her stepmom and travel across the country to Ohio to visit her sick mother (except we don’t actually know what’s wrong with her). She just RUNS AWAY. Doesn’t ask any questions or anything. NOPE. Running away is… Read more »

Poetry Talk: Wrong Side of a Fistfight by Ashe Vernon

Poetry Talk: Wrong Side of a Fistfight by Ashe Vernon

5 Stars, Reviews 0

So this was going to be a review but then I realized that poetry is… different than novels. Not quite sure how to review it, ya know. BUT I’m going to pretend like I do and see how it goes. So the title says Poetry Talk, but it’s really like a discussion/review/blabbering. It’s gonna be GOOD.  So while I love pretty words and metaphors and all that, poetry was never something I loved. Mostly because a lot of poetry takes a few reads and… Read more »

Review: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Review: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

2 Stars, Reviews 8

Possible spoilers ahead… So, I keep seeing blurbs and descriptions advertising this book as having a “riveting dystopian world,” of being a “thrilling superhero story” (both on the back blurb of my paperback copy) and of being a “dystopian thriller” (on wikipedia)… however, that’s not really accurate. I mean, yeah the world is dystopian, and the main character can kill people by touching them can I please have this power, and mayyybeee that makes it a dystopian thriller. But in my opinion, it… Read more »
